Great Weekend

Filed under: Beer,Charlotte,Kansas City,Sports — kcillini77 @ 9:42 pm

    My friend Josh surprised me with a visit this past weekend.  He arranged with my wife to come out from Charlotte for a three day weekend, and showed up on my doorstep much to my delight and surprise.  We enjoyed a Royals game, watching an Illini football game at a sports bar, some quality brews, and lots of great conversation.

Guys have a hard time typically developing friendships like this.  I know, because I don’t have any others that I would call a friend to this degree.  I hope he can eventually move his family back closer to KC.  I know Charlotte is an awesome city, but I really wish we could hang out together on a much more frequent basis.

Josh, it meant a ton to me that you would take your time and money to come out to see me.  Thanks, bud.  And Jen and I both can’t wait to see your bride again and meet your handsome little son.

A couple of thoughts

First off – came across this church in East Lansing, Michigan that has a homebrewing ministry. I love the fifth objective: To resume the Church’s historical role as making the finest beer in town. Honestly, I’m not 100% sure what I think of this, and I know my SBC affiliated church won’t be doing this anytime soon, but browse the referenced verses in the FAQ and in particular read the tab on “Church & Beer”. Needless to say I’m mostly in agreement, but feel free to share your thoughts be they pro or con.

Secondly, how ’bout them Royals, beating the Red Sox two out of three at Fenway. Take that, “Fever Pitch”! Make fun of the Royals in your movie, will you?

I’m not a mean guy…

A photographer from the Kansas City Star took this picture of me at the Parkville Microbrew Festival last Saturday.  I was having a conversation with a fellow beer enthusiast I had just met, and wasn’t aware the picture was being taken until afterwards.  I just want to say if I’ve ever talked to any of you and you thought I looked mean, I apologize.  I will try to work on that.
